READY, SET, GROW: RESIDENTS CALLED TO HELP GUIDE CITY’S GROWTH;

(October 22, 2008) Help Frisco design a road map for where it needs to go – and grow! The City of Frisco is looking for direction from citizens interested in helping staff update the City’s Zoning Ordinance that directly impacts the future development of this city. Applications are being accepted now through November 17 for Zoning Advisory Committee (ZAC).

 

The Frisco City Council will review applications and make appointments to the ZAC, which will work with City staff and consultant on the updating of the Zoning Ordinance over the next 18 to 24 months.

 

Members of ZAC will consider revising the Zoning Ordinance, which includes, but not limited to, regulating current — and future — land uses, lot sizes, setbacks, lighting standards, parking requirements, landscaping, and the process for reviewing site plans. The ‘Comprehensive Plan’, adopted in 2006, will be used to guide the updating of the Zoning Ordinance.

 

“These standards are vital to the development and ‘smart and sustainable growth’ of a city,” said John Lettelleir, Director of Planning & Development Services. “As a result, we need to review our ‘Zoning Ordinance’ periodically to make sure we’re meeting the City Council’s goal to become a sustainable city and to implement the City’s Comprehensive Plan.”

 

In 2000, the City of Frisco’s ‘Comp Plan’ was named ‘Best in the State’ by the Texas Chapter of the American Planning Association (APA). In 2006, a revision of Frisco’s ‘Comp Plan’ received a Planning Excellence Award by the APA.

 

Frisco City Council members will make their committee selections on December 2, during their regularly scheduled council meeting. Applications are available for download off the City of Frisco website at http://www.friscotexas.gov or by contacting Ryan Middleton, Planner at 972-292-5363 or rmiddleton@friscotexas.gov

 

Applications submitted by mail should be addressed to Ryan Middleton, Comprehensive and

Environmental Division, Planning & Development Services Department, City of Frisco, George A. Purefoy Municipal Center, 6101 Frisco Square Blvd, 3rd Floor, Frisco, 75034.
